The idea of “going green” has gone from a trend 10 years ago to a necessary way of life today. It isn’t so difficult. You and your family can make small changes that will leave a big impact, all while supporting a local business. Meet Minimal Market. The local shop can help guide your minimal waste journey. They offer convenient and affordable alternatives to disposable, wasteful products.

On our visit to Minimal Market (currently located in the tiny house community at Ferguson’s Downtown … a must see!) we checked out a variety of products. You can bring in your own jars to fill with natural soaking salts, sugar scrubs and more. Or you can purchase a jar to reuse over and over. The best part? Prices are very friendly.

We purchased a new large jar (to reuse on our next trip) and filled it with soaking salts,  a new small jar filled with a sugar scrub, a biodegradable toothbrush, reusable makeup remover pads and a Calendula salve — all for $24.46. A great value for sure!

Handmade bulk products including Calendula body/baby powder, sugar scrubs, bath salts, tooth powder and facial clays.

If you can’t visit their tiny house location downtown, Minimal Market can be found as a pop-up shop all over town.

They don’t ship (that would be wasted shipping material, duh!), so make sure to follow their social media or visit their website to see where they will be next!

Go home with products that ensure you’re doing your part in making a difference and making smart choices for your family. Learning begins at home. We can teach our little ones to change the way we consume to secure a more sustainable future.
